Trixie's Spooky Sunday Selfie

Hallo again, Effurrybody!

I (that is to say, Moi - Queen Trixie, Furrst of My Name, Empurress of Jerusalem, Israel and the Entire Middle East,  Guardian of the Boudoir, Alpha Kitty Extraordinaire) have been informed by my Social Petcretary that it is my Duty to My Faithful Subjects and Admirers to sit for a Special Pawtrait in honour of Halloween, which falls this week.

Halloween is not celebrated here in Israel, but as I am a Cosmeowpawlitan Kitty, I feel I would be short-changing My Fans were I not to make some concession to that holiday.

I refuse, however, to wear a costume. My own, beautiful furs should be costume enough, especially as I am A Black Cat and therefore, I am reliably informed, Spooky By Definition!

At this point, I want to say something furry impawtant (well, effurrything I say is impawtant, but what I am about to say now is a Matter of Life and Death)!
We have read that in some countries, black kitties are considered Inherently Evil - and are subjected to Horrible Cruelty, ESPECIALLY at Halloween.
This Practice must be stopped. All Felines, and the Humans who love Us (or even those who don't, but who have any sense of Decency) must work to stamp out the torture of black kitties at Halloween by Evil, Ignorant or just plain STUPID humans. We are not evil. We do not bring Bad Luck. We are not servants of Satan. (As if We would be servants of Anyone!!!)

Now, I was actually hesitating between two selfies.

Here is the furrst one, displaying to purrfection My Eyes and My Tummy. 

Touch My Tummy without purrmission and you will feel My Fangs!

Which one do you think is spookier?  I think the second one, don't you?  So that's the one which will be My Official Entry in today's Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue and their Human, Janet. 

Just to make it REALLY, REALLY Spooky, I had Mummy add the Scary Halloween Effect from Our favourite photo editing site, LunaPic.

Warning:  Flashing picture coming up!

How's that for Spooky?

Before I go, I want to wish you all a Good Week, as We always do. And We hope you allowed your Humans to enjoy an extra hour of sleep this morning, as the clocks went back last night and they got back the hour that was stolen from Us all in the spring.

And now, let's blog hop.

We start off with the Badge:

Caturday Art for Sukkot

Hallo again, Effurryone!

It is I, Caspurr the Courageous, Furrst of My Name, Commander-in-Chief of the Impurrial Forces, King of the Tigger - Tabbies, bringing  you the latest news from Our Far from Humble Abode (mol).

Sukkot (Tabernacles) is almost upon Us. It starts tomorrow evening with a festive meal in the sukkahOur sukkah is up in the Enchanted Forest, of course, and you are all invited to come and feast with Us there, tomorrow evening, 7.30 P.M. (Israel time).

Mummy's bruvva, Our Uncle Diddy (the one who lives in England and who doesn't really like cats - or so he says), is visiting Us for a few days, so We have had to give up Our Playroom for him to sleep in. We hope he is duly appurreciative of Our Generosity.  

Today, We are taking part in the Caturday Art blog hop hosted by the Wise and Beautiful Athena and her HuMum, Marie.

Now, I have to tell you that, unfortunately, I had a reappearance of the mysterious wounds that were troubling Me a couple of months ago and which seemed to have cleared up  - this time, on my chin. And I kept scratching at them, so Mummy is making Me wear that horrible Cone of Shame again:

Mummy said I should think of it as a fashion accessory, like an Elizabethan ruff, but Trixie and Shimshi said it's more like a halo, framing My Handsome Face, and that gave Mummy the idea of using this picture as a base for this week's Caturday Art, which she artified using the Heatmap effect, from Lunapic, at 52%.

It does look more like a kind of shimmering halo, don't you think?

Right, now it's time to join the blog hop - but not before wishing you, as usual, Shavua Tov (a Good Week) and also, to those who celebrate Sukkot, Chag Sameach (a Happy Holiday), and also not before adding the badge:

And off We go:

Sunday Selfie Peekaboo

Hallo again, Effurrybuddies!

We are sorry We haven't been visiting Our Furriends as much as We would like, but what with the High Holy Days and effurrything, Mummy has been terribly busy and, as you know, it is She who has the Secret Purrswords to the Computer Thingie so, as usual, it is All Her Fault, not Ours. 

It is neffur Our Fault, of course, because We are Cats. If We had a Woofie, We would blame him/her, but We don't have one - so We blame Mummy instead (mol).

Anyway, We don't want to miss another Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue and their HuMum, Janet,  so when Our Petcretary (a.k.a Mummy) asked who would like to be this week's Sunday Selfies Star, I, The Mighty Shimshon (Shimshi for short) a.k.a. The Little Purrince,  Master of the Queen's Mischiefs and Captain of the Guard, immediately took refuge under the refrigerator volunteered.

Before We set off on the blog hop, however, We want to wish you all a Good Week - as is Our Custom. Furthermore, since this Tuesday evening marks the start of Yom Kippurr (the Day of Atonement), We (including Mummy) would also like to ask your furgiveness if We have offended any of you in any way during the past year, and to wish you and your Humans a Good Final Sealing in the Book of Life.
